An evaluation of Oracle BI Enterprise Edition from Intelligent Enterprise

A good article from Intelligent Enterprise about the Oracle BI Enterprise Edition – Put to the test: Oracle BI Enterprise Edition.
Here is the part I feel worth highlight:
“the meta data layer is most powerful is in its ability to handle multiple schemas and to connect to multiple data sources that include relational (SQL Server, Teradata, etc.), multidimensional (Microsoft Analysis Services, SAP BW but not Essbase), XML, and even spreadsheets.”
“Oracle BI EE has an interesting and unique ability to present its meta data layer as an ODBC data source. In this approach, any end user tool ” whether Microsoft Excel or Access or even competitive BI tools ” can act as a front end to Oracle BI EE. “
